Rockfax Description
An outstanding line up the back arete of the pillar, featuring some stunning rock architecture. Climb up the arete into the short corner, pull out right then move leftwards across a slab to the arete. Gain the upper groove and follow it in an amazing position to the top. © Rockfax

Very good, deserves all of its stars!

Superb, some technical moves but nowhere pumpy. Regular gear and spookily conveniently positioned holds. One of the best E3s here!

Scary, not as much gear as I'd have liked, was probably hard climbing but I was gripped all the way so can't give a good review on that. The top out in rockfax is confusing, pumped myself silly trying it only to finish right and find that that was the way wired guide said to do it. Glad to have done it, type 2 fun

Great positions, but hard at the grade

Flipping well good. Spoilt only by painful feet! The approach is great!

Wow! So few logged ascents on here and such a brilliant route. It feels a little bit untraveled but the positions and moves are 3* as is the location. Nice lead Jon. An e3 for a confident e3 leader...
